The Western European Studies team (WES) promotes the study of the European Union by developing new courses, promoting events and sponsoring lectures. This concentration area has a multidisciplinary focus and benefits from the rich diversity of its members. Our courses cover a wide variety of topics in the humanities, languages and social sciences. Students can learn about European culture from Antiquity to the present day and explore the political and economic challenges faced by European nations. Through multiple study abroad programs, our majors and minors have the opportunity to enrich their learning experience during a semester at a European university.
